Is Hot Water Necessary for Laundry?

Readily available hot water is one of the many conveniences taken for granted by modern society. But despite its availability, it’s still important to be mindful about your usage. Moderating your usage of hot water can help keep your energy bills low and reduce your footprint on the Earth. Contrary to popular belief, plumbing experts say it usually isn’t necessary to use hot water for your laundry.

Modern detergents do an excellent job of removing dirt and grime from clothing without the aid of hot water. This is good news for your clothes, which respond to hot water by shrinking and fading. There are a few exceptions, however. You should still use hot water if a family member has severe allergies (like dust mites), if the household has had a flea or bed bug infestation, or if a family member has a contagious illness.
